Awwl- right! Don't change it again. Anyone want to meet at CJ's restaurant for breakfast and then ride over to Addison through Bald Mt? If it rains or Bald mt is still too wet we can ride the dirt roads over there. Mt Grampian is always fun to ride this early in the season.

So, please tell me if we NEED bikes for training or if they are for a post training ride only. My bike will be in the shop, so I need to know if I should bring another one to use for training only. Thanks.

yes please bring your bikes and be ready to ride both days. each ride will have different scenarios that you may encounter as a patroller, so be prepared!!!!

Bill,
Perhaps the "calendar link" should be updated as well. I would have went to PLRA if I didn't browse this index more. Not enough computer time lately.

Sorry Bill, but I noticed this report under trail conditions;

Posted 04/04/2005 by Tony_Misovski
Checked out Addison Oaks yesterday. It looked like a lot of the trail was muddy and what wasn't muddy was as soft as a sponge. I would avoid this trail for a while.

Wouldn't this also apply to the MMBP :?

i agree with wingzz. we'll have to play it by the conditions at the time. Backroads are cool with me. i think making that decision would demnstrate a good level of responsibility.
